Peony Pavilion v1c1

Peony Pavilion v1c1:
Peony Pavilion

I am excessively proud to present to you Peony Pavilion, a Chinese manhua by the artist 夏达 (Xia Da) based on ancient Chinese poetry. Lots of people I need to thank for the success of this project: first to Kaens and Yuu from #translators / #tl for introducing this manhua to me. blazing_ice of Shinnen did an absolutely astounding job translating this, managing to retain a great deal of the original poetry (though the rhyme and meter are unfortunately lost). Of course, I have to thank all the various people I kidnapped to TL check this, like my good friend Flyer and other assorted people who didn't want to be mentioned (not you, Yuu). The scans are beautiful, as is the typesetting (Chara~). It's quite unfortunate that there were several mistakes in printing, since they detract from the art itself. I've done my best to clean out these errors, but some may remain (and I truthfully couldn't do anything about them). And of course, 谢谢,夏达。 你的画真太漂亮了。

This will be available exclusively on IRC in #pure and in #shinnen for the first bit. DDL will be up in around 12 hours, as will read online at MangaToshokan. As per the last release, please refrain from uploading this to any other read-online resource for 48 hours.

Ore no Imouto Ga Konnani Kawaii Wake Ga Nai v1c5

And here I was hoping I'd release Wa! before this, but I guess not. Disappointing...

Anyway, Ore's story is finally picking up. I personally found this chapter quite cute and funny.

Please take a look at Zombie Romanticism below and look forward to newcomers Peony Pavilion, Honoka Lv. Up!, and China Girl, all of which will be released some time in the future! I swear at least one of these will be released in a timely fashion (i.e. in the next month)...

You can download by popping into my IRC channel, saying hello, and grabbing it from Kirino-chan. Alternately, you can use the "non-profit download resource," Rapidshare screw that, DDL up. Read online at MangaToshokan will appear in 12 hours is up. Please refrain from uploading this to any other read-online resource for 48 hours.

Zombie Romanticism v1c1

Zombie Romanticism v1c1

What is this? Another zombie manga?! Seems to be the new in thing to do for mangakas these days... At least it's better than vampires.

xXKyoXx has graciously given me an IRC bot to play with (kyaa~ I'll name her Kirino-chan and all that). What does this mean? There's now a bot on IRC where you can download any Pure release. Pop by and say hi to me, and grab stuff from the bot.

Anyway, this manga is awesome. This project is the child of Macurai (of Itadakimasu~) so please, any and all credit should go to him directly. I've really got nothing further to say, so go to Itadakimasu~'s site and enjoy!

Yes, yes, this is available on my lovely Kirino-chan as well, but why would you molest her when you can grab it in Macurai's channel? You can have a conversation with awesomeness-incarnate at the same time!
